    Literary Theory: A Very Short Introduction - Jonathan Culler

    I've just read the first chapter and am horrifically confused. I'm going to need to read it again and make formal notes, the first time I've ever had to do so with a book.

    I shall persist though!

    Summer Knight by Jim Butcher I decided that I couldn't be bothered to wait for the library to send it, so I bought it instead.

    Worth. Every. Penny.

    In school studying Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience, King Lear, Golding's Lord Of The Flies and Virgil's Aeneid, as well as a lot of Aristophanes, Plautus and Terence for my catastrophically badly chosen Class Civ coursework. Also rereading Ian McEwan's Atonement for sixth form book club.
    Outside of that, currently reading Remainder by Tom McCarthy, Dance, Dance, Dance by Haruki Murakami, Faust by Ivan Turgenev, Richard Yates' Collected Stories and Blood Of The Isles by Bryan Sykes.

    Just finished Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Philip K. **** and Am Miseanaraidh, Ian Crichton Smith.

    The first was a great read and il have to rewatch Blade Runner to compare now while the second was pretty underwhelming stuff from a writer who has always been excellent in my previous experience of him.

    Currently trying to carry on with Tad Williams' first book on Thorns and Memories and Sorrows - can't remember the exact title, to be honest.

    I'm only reading it because I was told it gets better, and only until I find something more interesting... :p:

    ...Told by me, I think it was, amongst others :p: "The Dragonbone Chair" ring any bells?

    I have just finished reading "Troubles" by J. G. Farrell
    and "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald
    and am now reading "Birdsong" by Sebastian Faulks
    and also "Regeneration" by Pat Barker

    Yes, English Lit. - War Literature. tedious to put it lightly.


    Also: "Science: A history (1543-2001)" by John Gribbin. First class book about the progression of science. Gives you a lot about the social situation at the time, and a really good idea of the time-scale involved (e.g. saying "100 years after the publication of.... after the birth of..." etc.)
    I highly recomend this book to anyone interested in science! Need a bit more than a faint interest, though, as it is quite heavy going. But well-written enough to be thoroughly enjoyable.

    Oh yeah, that was it. I bought the new Artemis Fowl book today, so I'm reading that, instead. It starts off infinitely better than that Williams book :p:
